However, for many people, the IBPS RRB PO Cut-Off may seem confusing. This article can clear your doubts and help you understand the cut-off marks better.
Where Can You Find IBPS RRB PO Cut-Off?

After you have selected the appropriate message, you will go to a login page. Here, you will need to enter your IBPS login credentials. Once you enter your credentials, you will be redirected to the cut-off marks page. Additionally, once you log in, you will also see your scorecard and verify whether you meet the cut-off requirements.
How Is the IBPS RRB Cut-off Marks Determined?
The IBPS cut-off for RRB or Regional Rural Banks varies every year. However, based on previous years’ cut-off marks, candidates can estimate expected cut-off marks. Apart from checking the previous cut-off marks, the candidates should also understand the factors that influence each year’s final cut-off marks. These factors are:
- Number of Applicants: Applicants from all across the country aspire to crack the IBPS RRB Exam. Every year the number of applicants increases. While there may be a large number of applicants, the vacancies are limited. Hence, the higher the number of applicants, the higher the cut-off for the examination.
- The Difficulty Level: When determining the cut-off for the examination, the difficulty level is also kept in mind. It is possible to decide on the desirable candidates with an extremely tough examination that selects the highest scorers. However, a challenging test may skew the scores too much, and many eligible candidates may be left out. Thus, the higher the difficulty level of the test, the lower the cut-off is. Of course, the cut-off is not low enough for all candidates to qualify; a base level is always set.
- Number of Vacancies: The vacancy varies each year, and it has a direct effect on IBPS RRB PO Cut-Off. If there are a small number of vacancies, a higher cut-off is set to qualify only the most desirable candidates. However, with many vacancies, a lower cut-off may be set to select an adequate number of candidates for the available positions.
Generally, based on previous years’ cut-off marks, it can be easy to determine the current year’s cut-off mark. However, since IBPS has already released the cut-off marks for this year, candidates do not need to guess any longer. Those scoring above the cut-off marks for the prelims examination are selected for the mains examination.
For Officer Scale I, II, and III, there is an interview stage for candidates who successfully pass the mains examinations. For Office Assistants, there is no interview, and those who pass the mains examination will be selected as the final candidate.
